 Hi,
 
   I  had  been  on  a  visit  to  one  of  my  friends  in  Anekal,  
 He  took  me  to  a  place  called  Muthyalmaduvu  falls.  It  is  supposed  to  have  a  waterfall  resembling  PEARLS.  
 
 There  was  no  water  at  all  when  we  reached  there.  The  waterfall  was  nothin  more  than  a  lilttle  trickle.  (We  will  be  planning  a  trip  again  soon  for  some  collection  and  will  post  the  details  then).  One  thing  as  an  appetiser,,  it  is  a  beatiful  place  and  for  guys  who  love  trekking  (Like  me  Smile),  an  absolute  paradise
 
 We  managed  to  get  a  few  fish  what  seemed  like  plain  guppies,  a  few  catfish  shaped  fish  and  a  few  loaches  from  the  stagnant  water  between  rocks.  Also  collected  a  few  rocks  from  there.
 
 Out  of  the  4  locahes,  3  of  them  are  brown  in  colour  with  dark  brown  stripes.  The  other  one  is  light  brown  and  has  spots  on  it.
 
 Can  anyone  please  ID  these  loaches  (out  of  curiosity,  would  like  to  what  are  these).  Sorry  for  not  posting  the  pics,  they  havent  come  out  properly  in  my  Camera  phone
 
 I  have  kept  these  fishes  (first  occupants)  in  my  second  tank  that  I  got  from  my  cousin.
 
 I  would  like  to  move  these  loaches    to  the  goldfish  tank.
 
 Can  anyone  please  tell  me  is  it  ok  to  have  loaches  and  goldfish  in  the  same  tank,  and  moreover  these  guys  are  from  the  wild  and  i  donno  anything  about  their  behavior,  from  what  i  saw  since  yesterday  they  seem  peaceful  and  mind  their  own  bottom-clinging  business.
 
 Looking  forward  to  some  replies  on  this,
 
 ~Hayath

 I  have  had  loaches  with  goldfish  before  -  never  had  any  problem  with  it.  Just  that  the  loach  would  tail  the  goldfish  at  times  -  may  be  just  out  of  curiosity.
 ONE  THING  REMEMBER  :
 If  you  have  any  snail  that  you  love,  never  mix  that  with  loach.  Snails  are  food  for  loach.
 
 Hope  that  helps.

 Loaches  love  cool  oxygenated  water.  They  shouldn't  be  much  of  a  problem  but  they  could  get  territorial  as  adults.

 I  don't  know  about  the  territorial  aspects  of  loaches,  but  I  have  never  heard  of  any  problems  from  the  loaches  when  kept  with  golds...

 Have  a  sun  loach  or  a  Black  Finned  shark  with  gold  fish,  you'll  know  about  their  territorial  behaviour.

 Yo  Yo  loaches  can  get  very  aggressive  and  may  attach  our  goldfish.  Certain  loaches  are  known  to  gauge  out  the  eyes  of  other  fish.  
 
 I  suggest  you  watch  them  very  closely  to  see  if  they  are  getting  along.

 the  best  thing  to  do  is  research  the  available  loaches  on  the  net  and  then  decide.

 Hi  Hayath:
 
 Loaches  and  Goldfishes  should  not  be  kept  together...
 Clown  and  Tiger  loach  have  the  tendency  to  nip  fins  of  other  slow  moving  fihes...
 
 Indian  loaches  (esp.  wildcaught,  love  to  graze  on  Algae)...If  you  keep  them  with  Gold  Fish,  they'll  tend  to  eat  the  body  slime  of  Gold  Fish  during  night  time...This  has  been  my  personal  observation  during  good  old  days  of  keeping  Gold  Fishes...
 
 Bye,

 Hi  Navil:
 
 I  had  kept  Corys  with  Gold,  without  any  problems...
 But,  ensure  that  the  Corys  get  food  which  fall  and  sink  to  bottom...as  they're  scavengers...As  most  of  us  feed  the  gold  fish  food  which  is  normally  floating  type  and  forget  to  feed  the  bottom  dwellers...
 Bye,

 Bye,                

 
 I  wish  this  article  had  come  earlier,  and  I  could  have  read  it  and  saved  four  of  my  golds  Sad
 Being  slow  moving,  to  me,  loaches  never  appeared  aggressive  to  anyother  fish,  but  yes  I  did  notice  them  following  golds,  and  that  I  thought  was  just  curiosity  on  the  part  of  the  loach.
 As  my  gold  were  nearing  their  end,  I  did  notice  a  strange  kind  of  discoloration  on  then  -  I  guess  that  explains  the  loaches  stealing  the  body  slime  as  you  have  put  it.
 Well,  that's  another  lesson  learnt  in  what  fish  to  mix  with  whom  -  though  I  learnt  it  the  hard  way
